DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER, COUNSELING AND PREVENTION
Lessening the likelihood of violence through education
Statistics show that there are over 200,000 battered women in Israel and half a million children exposed to domestic violence each year. NA’AMAT has a long history of reducing the damage caused by domestic violence, but wouldn’t it be better to prevent it all together?
A recent generous bequest has enabled NA’AMAT to take major strides toward our goal of making every household in Israel a safe, respectful place. NA’AMAT is deepening and broadening educational offerings, legal aid, counseling, and training for our entire staff, to better serve our women and families.
At our high schools and women’s centers, and in every facet of our organization, we provide opportunities for community members to understand all aspects of sexual harassment and ways to prevent violence against women.
Our efforts in this area are evolving, and we welcome support that enables us to lay the groundwork for a more equitable society in Israel, while we continue to provide resources to those most in need.
